A Culture of Health

Imagine an Inland Empire where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your freeway exit does not determine your health. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans, by making the places we live, learn, work, play, pray and heal healthier.
